Confessing things.

Hump Day already. Jumping right in to some confessions ... 
1. I posted on Friday that I was planning to make a shrimp stir fry.... and I did. And it was yummy. So so yummy. This is an almost done but in progress pic. Guys ... so yummy!! Did I mention yummy? #patsselfonback


2. I was cleaning out my wallet at work and I found this old card from my friend Whitney that she gave me ages ago. I confess I might have teared up. Little things. Whitney is my girl for life!!



3. Speaking of Whitney ... I confess I get a thrill out of tearing people up in Words with friends. Even sweet girlies like Whitney!


4. I've been on a battle to lose the lbs that I've gained in 2014 because that was just as shitfest of a year. Soooo ... I have not been drinking at all. I miss my wine. Like miss it! Not sure why I'm doing this to myself .. after all ... 


5. My planner. I love it. I know I've posted my Erin Condren on here before but it just wasn't practical for work. This one I can take to work without too many judgmental stares ha! I use it very practically aka not too many stickers etc .. but I love how I've made it ... pretty :D

6. I have so much work to do this week I almost just skipped this week of blogging altogether. But I'm here. I'm showing up. Because I love this space. I really do!

Have a great day guys!

  8. That stir fry looks bomb! Props to you for giving up drinking. It's only been 3 weeks since I last drank & maybe it's more because I couldn't than was choosing not too but now that I'm finally off meds I'm ready for a drink. I bought myself beer yesterday just so I could have one today when I got home from work.

  12. I confessed today about the page a day calendar I really wanted.. and checked amazon at lunch there were some reasonably priced ones posted! CALENDAR WIN! I wish I could use a planner, but if it's not on my phone with a reminder, I'm SOL.

  20. I love the color of your planner! Where did you get that one?

    ReplyDelete
  21. I don't play any kind of games on my phone because I'm always too busy reading, lol. I didn't invest in a pricey planner this year because I found one that works in the $1 spot at Target!! That stir fry looks so delicious. One of the easiest healthy things to eat when I'm trying to lose weight.

  27. That stir fry looks delicious! And that planner! My planner is pretty big so its kind of a pain to carry around, but it keeps everything in its place so it serves its purpose. I pull out all my colorful pens and washi tape with it at work too and idgaf who stares! I plan my deadlines, filings, hearings, personal appointments, and everything else in it so it keeps me on track with everything all in one place. And I've been trying to lose a few inches by working out more, but for the past week or so we've been living out of Joey's parents' living room while our house is being re-tiled so workouts have been put on hold. Meanwhile, because of all the stress, I've been needing to drink more!
